Alvarion Chooses Sequans Mobile WiMAX Chips

SEQUANS Communications will supply its new Mobile WiMAX base station chips to Alvarion. Alvarion plans to use the chips to build pico base stations and implement its additional unique technology and advanced features above the 802.16e standard.

Sequans' SQN2130 ASIC is optimized for Mobile WiMAX base stations. It is a highly integrated MAC and PHY baseband chip, providing high performance, scalability, and flexibility. It supports TDD and FDD and delivers high throughput to serve tens of thousands of subscriber stations, delivering the full line rate even with small packet sizes. It is 802.16e Wave 2-ready, and supports standard interfaces to ASN gateways for easy integration into existing deployed networks.
